Considering he hasn't really bothered the publics conscience since Beautiful Love, the more recent stuff sounded nice and familiar. One tune contained the humorous line "I like the avant garde, but you avant garde a clue". Classics like Christine and Sunspots also got an airing.
Of course it wasn't perfect. The guitar songs were either played on straight acoustic or acoustic through fx pedals. This meant that some of the songs did disappear into a puddle of noise come the middle eight.
Mention should also be made of the support act. David Wrench looked a bit like a geriatric Suicide with a chap in white denim and grey beard shouting anarchist type statements over a two note synth line for ten minutes.
